The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola disclosed this at a world news conference on Thursday in Abuja. He said three other high profile persons also benefitted from the presidential amnesty. He added that the gesture means that they were never convicted.

Aregbesola added that presidential pardon has also been granted to about 2,600 inmates nationwide. Out of the said number, 70 inmates will be released Thursday from Kuje maximum custodial centre as part of efforts to decongest the centre.

He said the Presidential pardon followed recommendations to the President by a Presidential Committee and the imperative of drastically reducing the number of inmates in custodian centres across the country due to the outbreak of COVID 19.
